remember president obama's controversial pastor, his ex-pastor, the reverend jeremiah wright. tonight the, the drudge report is touting a report by the daily caller of what drudge calls the quote, unscrubbed video of a speech by then senator obama. he was speaking back in 2007 the a conference of black clergy at virginia's hampton university, a gathering that included reverend wright. this is reportedly part of the tape. >> and then i've got to give a special shout-out to my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. he's a friendnd a great leader. please, everybody, give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor, dr. jeremiah wright, jr. where's he at? there he is. that's him. >> senator obama then warned of a quote, quiet riot building in the african-american community in the wake of hurricane katrina and other factors which he said the bush administration was neglecting. as we said, this tape isn't new, only part of it is out there, and the hyping of it may have as much to do with politics and little to do with content. we'll see. more is suppos

shout-outs, for example, to reverend jeremiah wright, some other small nuggets that the daily caller thought were exclusive. >> tell you what, i want you to highlight the jeremiah wright issue as well because there were some serious comments made about the reverend jeremiah wright, and when you say shout-out, it was a heck of a shout-out. i mean, my friend, my colleague, my mentor, my -- all sorts of lawedible comments about jeremiah wright, and then the next year, no more jeremiah wright. >> right. yeah, well, also, remember that when he was making that shout-out to jeremiah wright, it wasn't until sometime much later that jeremiah wright really became an issuend sort of blew up and was heavily covered in the media. now, to be honest with you, some democratic strategists will conclude and have said, this isn't that flattering to then senator obama, having his words like this dissected, not flattering at all, but as a political matter, the sense among democrats i've talked to is they believe this is not likely to have that big an impact on the obama campaign, and one strategist said

the clip about where he praised jeremiah wright. and now the difference of the response of hurricane katrina to hurricane andrew. >> down in new orleans, there is a federal law called the stafford act. the local government has to give a match. here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the stafford act. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, they said look at this devastation, don't expect you to put that money in. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar, where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the but let hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president seems to be speaking at a difference cadence and a different kind of voice than he does in other speeches. decide the same thing about this. the conte

his former pastor, the reverend jeremiah wright. did it make you feel squeamish? what did you think when all of a sudden we're hearing about reverend wright? >> no. look. that's an issue that was litigated and talked about very specifically for a good period of time during the '08 cycle. so i think the american people have made up their minds of who president obama is, what kind of ideas he has about what our country is and where he wants to take it. so i don't think that people will want to relitigate that. the notion that mitt romney's campaign had nothing to do with this i find lacking credibility. when you consider the closeness that matt drudge has to the romney campaign, it's hard to imagine a scenario where there was not some sort of conversation or collusion or even the handoff of the video which is five years old to matt drudge knowing that many people in the media would be led around by matt drudge and cover something they'd already covered five years ago. >> just to be precise, the daily caller website is the one that posted the video, that's tucker carlson's website. it

school. later if you look at jeremiah wright, there are common themes running through all of these guys. then i just take the ideology of the father and i compare it with the actions of the son. and i say, look, it's like a detective story. does the jigsaw fit? and it turns out that if you look at obama's actions, even now in the middle east, it looks like what he's trying to do is scale back american power, and allow indigenous influence within the region to gain power. >> you draw a lot of parallels with yourself, and obama. i want to watch a little bit about that and i wonder why. >> we were both born in the same year, which is 1961. we both went to an ivy league school. in his case columbia, later harvard. in my case dartmouth. we got our bachelor's degree, we graduad the same year, '83. we were married in the same year, 1992. we both have a kind of mixed race background. >> almost like you have some sort of kinship with the president. why did you do that? >> well, if i look at other presidents they're so remote from my own life. but with obama, i think a part of what makes him inte
